For over 30 years JW Fishers has specialized in the design and manu- facture of reasonably priced, high tech underwater search equipment.

The product line includes diver-held and boat-towed metal detectors, marine magnetometers, underwater camera systems, ROVs, and side scan sonar. The company was founded in the mid-60s by current president and

CEO Jack Fisher. It all started when

Fisher, an avid diver, needed an underwater metal detector to use on a salvage project. The product line was expanded from diver-held metal detectors to boat-towed metal detec- tors and magnetometers. Underwater cameras were a natural follow-on to the product line: customers wanted a tool they could use to look at targets they were finding with their boat- towed detectors or they simply want- ed to do a visual search of an area.

Recently a family of low cost side scan sonar, the ultimate underwater search system, was added to the line.

Fishers side scan sonar is a break- through in a high performance, low cost, side scan system equipped with a 17-in. wide thermal printer.

Today the company maintains an active R&D effort to explore and develop new technologies for under- water search in order to offer our cus- tomers cost effective solutions.
